    Increasing db_cache_size

    I want to increase the size of the parameter db_cache_size from 1008M to
    2048M in order to get better hit ratio.

    SQL> show parameter db_cache_size;

    db_cache_size big integer 1008M

    SQL> show sga

    Total System Global Area 2147483648 bytes
    Fixed Size 2085424 bytes
    Variable Size 1073745360 bytes
    Database Buffers 1056964608 bytes
    Redo Buffers 14688256 bytes

    SQL> show parameter sga


    lock_sga boolean FALSE
    pre_page_sga boolean FALSE
    sga_max_size big integer 2G
    sga_target big integer 0

    My question is, if sga_max_size is set at 2G, would I be able to increase my db_cache_size to 2GB or do I need to first increase my sga_max_size first. Or to re-phrase, how is sga_max_size set, is
    it calculated or does it need to be manually set. I'm thinking its calculated because I dont see this in my spfile.

    I am running on a 64 bit AIX 5.3 machine on version with 50GB
    of memory on this machine. So raising this value 1GB would not cause my performance to degrade.

    Thanks to all who answer
